Heirloom quality woodworking

A quiet garage at the end of Adams Ave is the point of creation 130213_Studio_Shoot_Boxes_0005-Editfor some incredible wooden furniture120909_Sean's Tables_0050 and useful objects. First noticed in 2012 by the Oregonian while at the Scappoose Farmers Market, Cascade Architectural Woodworking has been steadily building a solid reputation for high quality craftsmanship.

CAWW is a true family business. Sean MacComb and his father Alan have been working together for over ten years now, most of that time with Sean’s brother Doug. They specialize in cabinet work, but have discovered that they also want to put their work into as many hands as possible.

This means cutting boards, cribbage boards, coffee 110320_Sean's tables - reload_0155-2-Edittables and much more are what occupy idle hands between cabinet jobs. Without a retail 120909_Sean's Tables_0080-Editfront, CAWW has mostly been discovered by word of mouth, although they currently have a regular presence at the Vernonia Open Air Market. Alan can be reached at alanmaccomb@frontier.com and Sean can be reached at 503-369-7317, or simply stop by market on Adams Ave on Saturdays 10-2pm.130822_Cribbage Boards_0002

Vernonia Arts for Children

Vernonia, a small community in the coastal range of Oregon, has a secret that is slowly going public. It’s a growing haven for the arts, where amazing old talent appears unexpectedly from small shops, barns and studios, and new talent is nurtured and appreciated across the board.

This beautiful youtube clip gives a small peek into what Vernonia children are doing with their free time. Enjoy!
